RAF 1941 Pattern Slant Zip Gloves

RAF 1941 Pattern Slant Zip Gloves

Product Review (submitted on December 9, 2013):
Service was everything that any other company should aspire to provide. I did, however, find my experience with the gloves less commendable and lacking in function over appearance. I misunderstood the "fully lined" description in that I thought they would be a warmer glove. It's lined more for padding than warmth. From a historical standpoint, this glove IS meant to be worn with a layered system for winter flying. In this respect, I will agree with CRM that larger sizes would be very convenient for someone like myself who is looking for warmth or to layer.

After about two weeks of use, a few teeth on my left glove zipper are missing, and both gloves are torn at a few of the seams. Use includes riding a Ural motorcycle a few days a week to my local airfield for flight training, and are kept indoors with my flight cap and goggles on a shelf by the door. (No helmet law in AZ!) All in all, the gloves are very pretty and feel nice on the hands, but my pair didn't last me very long. Maybe mine came from a bad run?
